silage

This 2-day TopFodder course covers the science of silage making. See flyer for details.

Workshop Overview

Making and feeding high quality silage with lower fibre levels encourages higher feed intakes and better cow performance. This workshop highlights the steps for making high quality temperate pasture silage.

Farmers will learn to:

  • Improve the quality of silage made
  • Evaluate the role of silage within their system
  • Reduce losses and wastage (during harvest, storage and feed-out)
  • Develop a better understanding of the cost of fodder conservation
  • Make silage production more profitable
